|Sale of toys, dolls and so forth on Christmas Eve Night - W.O. Beckenbaugh|
The Cylinder Archive [www.cylinder.de] release for December 2013: This cylinder was recorded by the Columbia Phonograph Company in 1896 and is a rather awkward Christmas selection. It probably is the most commercial one of its time, recorded by auctioneer W. O. Beckenbaugh, who is holding an imaginative auction of toys and other things on Christmas eve. In a social perspective this could be a pre-echo of the American Black Friday sales and the correlation between business and Christian holidays...

|Lina Yorke - William Tuson|
The Cylinder Archive [www.cylinder.de] release for April 2013: The clarinet player William Tuson had a great recording career during the brown wax era, starting as early as 1890. This particular recording dates from 1897 and is, unfortunately unlike most of these early records, in pristine condition. It was recorded for the Columbia Phonograph Company with their recently opened office in New York when they had moved from Washington, DC.
